Important update for tuition providers, about temporary changes to the Education and Skills Funding Agency's (ESFA) apprenticeship procurement process, affecting the RoATP.
You may be aware that as of 12 April, the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) decided to pause their apprenticeship procurement process. This was to allow training providers the opportunity to bid for contracts delivering apprenticeships to non-levy paying employers.
If you are already on the on the RoATP, you will not be affected. You will be sent funding allocations for the rest of the year and will be able to use these to deliver training to new apprentices employed by non-levy payers until the end of 2017.
If you are not already on the RoATP, you will not get any funding allocations for this year.
The ESFA will publish updated versions of their funding rules shortly. For more information, visit: https://www.gov.uk
